An Unbiased Comparison of the Siemens SIMATIC S7-1200 and AB (Allen-Bradley) MicroLogix Controller
Electronic system architectures provide different benefits, giving customers alternatives that suit their requirements. Getting an independent analysis of the benefits can help potential buyers determine what the tradeoffs mean to them, but finding third party analysis of industrial systems is sometimes difficult.
Join us for this 45-minute educational webinar that will focus on the technology behind these two popular controller platforms. Nick Shea, project engineer for DMC Inc., an engineering and software company based in Chicago, IL. will provide details based on his extensive work with several installations
You will learn about:
Brief discussion on class of controllers, and models of controller hardware and software being analyzed.
GUI layout of each programming software and benefits
Initial online connection stategies
Hardware configuration and I/O configuration techniques as well as auto-detection capabilities
Basic programming, including the organization of programming routines
Management of data memory
HMI integration/connection to other devices and other advanced features
There are many factors that determine what architecture will be picked when engineers and designers decide what hardware they want to use. This webinar will help users understand the differences between major equipment suppliers to they can make informed decisions.
